Antibody-Drug Conjugates: IP and R&D Trends to Inform Innovation

Life Sciences, Clinical Trials, Drug Discovery & Development,
  • Thursday, November 16, 2023

Discover a groundbreaking webinar delving into advancements in antibody-drug conjugates (ADCs) and related patent filings. Antibody-drug conjugates are among the most promising drug classes in oncology. The ADC research landscape is rapidly evolving, driven by advancements in antibody engineering, linker technology, payload development and diversification and more.

Rapid advancements in antibody-drug conjugates research, increasing commercial investment and expanding diversity of non-cancer disease applications are reshaping the future promise of ADCs. However, they also present challenges for innovators and drug developers seeking to understand the complex and competitive intellectual property (IP) landscape.

Join this webinar to gain insights into the latest trends in antibody-drug conjugate innovation and the complications of understanding the IP landscape in this area. The experts will highlight the critical importance of staying up to date with evolving research and development (R&D) trends and patent filings to determine freedom to operate, protect complex innovations and maximize return on investment (ROI).
